Skulduggery Pleasant: The Faceless Ones

Looking for a book you won’t be able to put down, that’s full of bone-cracking chuckles besides? Look no further than Skulduggery and Valkyrie’s latest adventure. If you’ve read the previous books you’ll know what the Faceless Ones are – and if you know what the Faceless Ones are, you can take a wild guess that things are about to get AWFULLY sticky for our skeletal hero and his young sidekick. But hey – don’t panic. You’ve seen it all before, right? Some bad guys want to destroy the world, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie fight valiantly to stop them. A few people get hurt, sure, but it’s all OK in the end. Well – not this time.

Get ready to chatter your teeth in terror and rattle your funnybones with laughter at the return of Skulduggery, the funniest dead detective ever!
